Honestly man I don't blame you for your views. The powers that be did a very good job of convincing people that this is the case. I hope you know that if you ever wake up and realize it's the government holding you hostage, not the unvaccinated, that we will accept you with open arms.

Oh, the irony!! LMAO.

A guy I worked with won a car, a Buick Century. The people who raffled the car told him they didn't sell enough tickets to pay for the car and offered him $5K in cash. He wanted the car and after some back and forth they agreed to get him a car but found a stripped down model like 400 miles away and they made him go pick it up.

Oh, jesus, dude. smh.

I will never cease to be amazed by the number of people who buy into the silliest horsecrap and are just certain they're the ones who know The Real Story.

im leftist and think it's crazy how many people on "my side" of the isle went from calling trump a fascist to "show me your papers." In less than a year. It would be funny if it wasn't so serious

I don't enter contests because even though I'm completely aware on a rational basis that the odds are astronomically against winning, my emotions always have me fantasizing what I'll do with my winnings. It's healthier for me to just not play.

As an aside, I used to watch "Let's Make A Deal" when I was a wee lad, and I always wondered what the people who won the hippopotamus would do with it. I did not realize that, no, they had NOT won a hippopotamus, but had in fact won nothing. I kinda wanted the hippopotamus.

I've been staying out of this, and I've been sympathetic to your threads and even supportive. But this post is really reaching and you sound like a conspiracy theorist.

"Serious" is 800,000 people dead, and hospitals full of people who 'made a medical choice'.

The 7410 crankset has arrived for "Interim Rebuild 2 - Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Go Back Into The Garage". Good think it's supposed to be sunny this weekend, or Interim Build 1 might never have a chance to be ridden!

Gene hit the nail on the head. If I start thinking about the lottery and all the things I would do if I won, but then I never win.

There was an article the other day that was titled How to win the lottery. It included a 7 time winner.

First sentence makes it sound like this guy won the mega millions 7 times. However, that was not the case.

He won scratchers 7 times but he is the expert on how to win the mega millions.

His adviceÖ..Drum Roll















Buy a lot of tickets.


I stopped reading after that first wonderful tidbit of information.

You havnt been to airport recently.


I always find it interesting you will see the cops with rifles all together at the airport. Usually in one small pack of 3 and 4 and they just stick together. You would think spread out evenly theough out the airport would be more beneficial.

But what do I know?

That's almost as cool as riding by the Brown Squirrel. Do they have tours?

Many years ago, there were allegations (and they were credible) that BD would offer discounts to a few select BF members in exchange for posting favorable reviews. It was very controversial at the time, but itís now ancient BF history.

I'd just go ahead and get that DA on there while it's still chilly in the morning, then go ride after it's warmed up a bit.
